birthday pillowcase

My sister gave me a good idea a while ago to make a birthday pillowcase.  I must admit I have procrastinated for a while since both of my boys have birthdays in the holiday season....
I found this super cute fabric and decided why not.....
SO I cut the top piece ....you use 1/3 yard for the top and 2/3 yard for the bottom.  Measure the width of your pillow and cut accordingly. Fold the top in half and iron.....
and then I cut the middle piece but decided not to use it as I really loved the look of the orange rickrack.  Once your fabric is cut lay your pieces out.  Place the two pieces on top of one another right sides together.   Then you sew the Happy Birthday (top piece) onto the stripes (bottom) fold in half with right sides together and sew up the bottom and the side and you are done. Then I sewed the rick rack right on the top of the where the two pieces meet and wala you are done!
Here it is all done...my boys think it is so cool...that is what it's all about right???
